The Picturebooks Bring Raw Blues Infused Garage Rock to Roadburn 2015 | New Album Imaginary Horse Out Now!
Constantly pushing the limits of sound with an arsenal of self-modified instruments, Germany’s The Picturebooks tap into buzzy blues and glorious garage rock territory on Imaginary Horse, their super infectious debut LP for RidingEasy Records.
It’s not surprising that The Picturebooks recorded Imaginary Horse in the same garage where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers. The German duo – Fynn Claus Grabke (vocals, guitar) and Philipp Mirtschink (drums) – capture a raw, rich, and real energy befitting of the room’s natural reverb, industrial aura, and spiritual spark.
Mirroring their daredevil skateboarding ethos and easy riding antics, The Picturebooks will rev up their howling engines and conjure true fire at the 20th Edition of Roadburn Festival on Sarurday, April 11th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
The Picturebooks are currently on tour throughout Europe with German rockers Kadavar. Imaginary Horse is out now via RidingEasy Records.
